In recent years, there has been an increase discussion of
mental illness and mental health. Also, there have been cases which have shown
that mental health issues may be particularly affecting public safety workers.
Rose Ricciardelli is an Associate Professor at MUN, and has studied the mental
health rates of correctional facility workers, and other public safety workers.
In addition, she has studied the effects of remand prison time on people who
have been incarcerated. I’m John Sandlos, director of the Nexus Centre, and in
this podcast, I talked with Rose Ricciardelli about her work.
For more information on Rose Ricciardelli’s work check out
